  1. Hi! Does anybody played ported cab with 2x Eminence Beta 12A speakers? Any opinions?

     

  2. I compared Beta12A speakers with those B102 and BP102 and the speakers looks like Beta's. This black outer part of the speaker looks like on Beta's not like in B or BP speakers. I know that probably -3db for 55-60hz for 5 string and -3db for 75-80hz will be enough (or even -6db I guess) but I still don't know if this cab can handle it. Or at least can handle without lost important low end frequencies which will be necessary to get good low end from my basses. If Beta's will be bad choice I will definitely buy other similar speakers with better specs but which one will be better? What should I looking for? I need to know answers for those questions to be sure I know what should I looking for. Thanks.
  3. I don't know about this particular video but I know that Eminence Beta12A are speakers in this cab. I compare them with other Eminence speakers and their round part of the speakers looks like Beta speakers. Why I should use HPF on this cab? I have 400w hybrid amp. I can't hear it unfortunately. I ask those questions because I read on facebook group that those speakers and this cab can be somewhat weak chain in my signal path because of those speakers freq response and size of the cab. And I don't wanna get cab which is not good for bass. Of course I don't need subbass on the scene or during rehearsals because it's just a mud and nothing else but I want to have all usable low end in my gear and if this cab don't meet my expectations with it then maybe I should looking for something else? But which one? People say that specs don't play but definitely you can't cheat physics and acoustics so those parameters can tell a lot about gear. I have had AMpeg 410HLF and I know that I don't wanna have so much subs, scooped mids, and so harsh treble like 410HLF has. And I need smaller cab for sure. I had GK NEO 2x12 and that was nice cab but probably a little bit too much modern to my taste? Since then I knew that 2x12 will be a sweetspot between great sound and reasonable wight and size. I had 15' Ampeg and Taurus amps and 15' is probably not what I like. Kind of muddy sound. Nice lows, harsh treble and mids. Lot of muddy mids.
  4. I find out from HandBox site that this cab have 50-16k freq response. I don't know how much +/- db's here or there but that's what info on the site says. Could you tell me about xmax value? What does it mean for bass speaker?
  5. Entry level? So not pro sounding? So maybe I should looking for sth else? I used this calculator https://www.lautsprechershop.de/tools/t_box_vented_hoges_en.htm and it says that ported cab with that speakers should have +/- 3db on 40hz and sealed one +/- 3db on 85hz so if it's ported then it would be great but I don't know if this particular size of the cab gives that freq response. And I don't know how to check that without any measuring tools. I don't have that but I just wanted to know if there will be great sound and good low end from this cab. I play on 4 string but I will buy 5 string soon and want to have good sound from those low notes too.
  6. Hi could you help me? Could you tell me what kind of cab it is? Ported or sealed? The speakers are Eminence Beta12A. How can I measure frequency response of that kind of speakers in that cabinet size? It's good for 5 string bass, enough low end? Thanks.

      Hi jb,  you might be better putting it in the amps and cabs section where more people will see it 🙂

  8. Yes indeed! I always don't like to tweak any knobs, eq's, compressors and all that stuff and now I can leave it aloneeverything in the middle and sounds great. Need some bass? I boost bass or cut some highs. Need some highs? just cut some bass or add treble. If you still don't have enough mids in your sound then it's probably is sth with your bass. But you can just cut some bass and treble and have more mids. But it happens so rarely that I can't remember when I must tweak sth in my R400 during gig or rehearsal!
  9. This amp is so flat sounding that actually you don't need tweak nothing at all. I have the same amp and just set everything flat and turn off every switches and contour off and it sounds great. I use only my onboard eq on bass sometimes. I think that those switches and contour are not necessary at all. Or it would be better to make some contour but with choosing frequency to cut. That would be even more usefull than just cut @1k only by contour knob. But you can always give a feedback to Leszek and maybe he improve his amp to suits better for us?
  10. Hi guys quick question. Which flat to choose instead TI Flats? Same clarity and bright sound but more tension are what I need for. Thank you.

      @acidbass LaBella make great strings but this sound is too dark for me. TI have great sound and durability but are so loose that I can't play fast on them because they stay on my fingers and don't have any "give". I tried D'Addario in the past too but are useless after about year of use. Fenders the same. And sound is rather oldschool thump than modern bright of TI.

      @Jean-Luc Pickguard I order them because I heard some samples on YT on Musicmans and sound really bright and modern as TI and that's what I'm looking for. I don't need "Jamerson flatwound sound". I like flats because of direct, compact sound, feel and lak of harshy high end but also I need bright and modern tone. On TI I can play fingers or pick and you don't hear immediately that those are flats like on other strings. And I hope that EB Cobalst give me the same results Thanks.

      @jb90 I think I got mine on eBay.  Like I said, there's some used ones for sale here.  Like Acidbass, I tune my bass flat on all strings, so the higher tension helps to normalize the feel.

      I've had the same set on for a few months and they don't sound too different from new, so last a long time like flats.

  11. Than Thanks for reply. Does this ruler have 1/64's on it or only mm? Does it have hex key for Fender/Musicman bridges?
  12. Hi. I consider to buy some bass setup tools. I thought about CruzTools and Dunlop tools. CruzTools have even full bass set kit. Did you ever use their tools? Are they a good quality stuff or maby looking somewhere else? Thanks for any advice.

      Bought a great Cruztools set a few years ago.  Had everything I needed really for a great setup, except a tuner and radius gauges.  Recommended!

      Had a CruzTools guitar tool set for years. Some of it is a bit rusty now, but good sturdy stuff, especially the handy little blue pocket multi-tool.

  14. For me? Only flats. But you don't like them so probablly I would choose EB Slinky strings. Not too bright and when they start to sound dull they have good hi-mids but overall sound mellow. But for the best results I would choose the best - DR, LaBella, Thomastik - both flats and rounds are the greatest on the market (imo). Just play them for good amount of time and make rounds dull quickly. Especially those cheapier ones like D'Addario or Slinky's dead very quick when you dig them well.
  15. Hi, Which pro tuner will be good for intonation settings and for everyday use (home and gig)? I have my old Boss TU-12 but it's so old that it just break after 15 years or more now! I need something very accurate to set properly intotnation but also good for pedalbaord. It will be good to hold B and C string too. Thanks

      Yeah, a strobe type like a Peterson or a Sonic Research Turbo Tuner is what you want for extreme accuracy
